  • To ensure contractors have the necessary PI cover/documentation in place
  • To ensure RTW and in country equivalents including visa, residence and passports are in place for each transaction
  • To build out a monthly reporting pack that identifies the compliance across each business unit / manager and to

This Head of L&C will be a senior manager role in the organization’s growing structure and will require

  • Build robust/trusted partnerships with sales team and sales leaders and other team members on the support side
  • Build robust client relationships with procurement and buying stakeholders
  • To drive the companies overarching values
  • To be seen visibly as a “go to” senior leader that has answers/solutions
  • To develop the companies reporting and contractor call cycle logging on our systems
